Many of our readers are online bookmarking users, as I see many of them have bookmarked the pages in lifehack.org for later reference. How to use del.icio.us effectively and be a power user? Blogger David Brunelle has some answers for you. He has couple of tips on storing and accessing your bookmarks, effective way to share your links, and how to find some good links:

1. Use Browser Buttons: Browser buttons are an easy, convenient way to bookmark a web site, or view your del.icio.us bookmarks. There are buttons for Internet Explorer, and a Firefox Extension.
2. Use IE’s Active Channel: If you’re an IE user, there is a del.icio.us Active Channel (What’s an active channel?) that creates an easy way to access your del.icio.us bookmarks through IE’s Favorites menu.
3. Use Tags Effectively: When applying tags to del.ico.us bookmarks, use tags that will be easy to interpret at a later point. However, be consistent (don’t use application, utility, app, and tool – decide on one and stick to it)
